something has gone horribly wrong 8-p
Prefer flash? · Embed · Questions/Feedback?

A Little curiosity from the 50s - a Dorothy Gray Cosmetics commercial, advertising a new face cream that'll remove ANYTHING from your face. That's right! Anything. To prove it, they use a radioactive tracer in the dirt to see just how much dirt the cold cream removes. You'll be astounded with the results!

Wonder if that model is still alive.

It's so quick and easy, takes the same amount of time as inproper cleansing! Really? Did people really talk like that? I love 50s advertising... they spoke properly to an extreme. This was before ad agencies got the idea to do two things... actually "talk" to the viewers, and tell a story. People remember "situations", even if they don't remember the product. In the 60s, you will notice that advertising took a turn, they introduced a situation and spoke directly to the viewer using everyday language.

Love this ad!

Dorothy Gray Salon Cold Cream is used by three out of four nuclear power plant workers. I love it, it gives my skin a special glow.

P.S. I love spots like these,... they are so innocent that they tell the truth.
